well make sure you warm your muscles up properly first, then stretch....stretching does not warm the muscles up....I'm working on my strength and conditioning major and we were taught that stretching mostly benefits the muscle when it is stretched for 15-30 seconds for about 2-3 reps, preferably 30 seconds to really stretch the muscle but anywhere from 15-30 is ok......just put your skates on and skate moderately before you play, getting your blood flowing then start stretching.....most injuries occur because people don't stretch properly......oh yeah stretch really really slow that way you get the most out of it, stretching really fast doesnt help, for example touching your toes with your legs together, reach for your toes slowly so you really stretch out the muscles ya know, it just helps really prepare your muscles for exercise
